Short Answer
You should contact your insurance provider’s claims department as soon as reasonably possible to report your Travel Delay claim. You will need to fill out a claim form and submit supporting documentation for your provider to validate your claim.

More Detail
Travel Delay can provide coverage for extra expenses like meals and accommodations during a delay. Travel Delay becomes effective after your common carrier, such as an airline or cruise line, is delayed for more than 3-12 hours, depending on your policy’s requirements.

After you report your Travel Delay claim, your provider will let you know what supporting documentation they need to process your claim. Supporting documentation for a Travel Delay claim may include:

  • Your original and updated itineraries
  • A statement from your common carrier, such as an airline or cruise, confirming your delay, including how long you were delayed and the reason for the delay
  • Receipts for additional expenses, such as meals or accommodation
